Acer Aspire 5 - A515-47-R3Y6 - Webcam not dectected by guvcview/others


I'm on 6.1.4-arch, and I am having issues with my webcam on this laptop model.

lsusb returns the webcam as Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0408:4033 Quanta Computer, Inc. ACER HD User Facing.

Currently, the only possible driver I found online seems to be sourced from this post … 94663.html.

Personally, I am unsure of the method this user uses to install updates to the uvc driver, as these instructions are meant for building under apt. Does anyone know how to integrate this driver into a recompiled kernel?


Note: inxi returns this as output
